Facing Fears!

They say we don't grow if we only ever stay where we're comfortable so I've decided to start doing things that I'm afraid of. Today, it was facing the Wheel. I can hardly believe I did this!

It was SOOOOO scary, but I made it! I may even do it again!

Last Scale Hurdle!

I can hardly believe it! Look what the scale says today! Bring it on, twos! I'm ready to kick your butts!

Today's the Day

Nine years ago, I had a job interview and needed a nice outfit. I went shopping and was able to find a jacket that barely fit. I couldn't button it. I couldn't lower my arms comfortably, but it would have to do. It was my only option.

I put the jacket on as I walked in and took it off the second I got out. For the hour in between, I was as still as I could be without being awkward.

The jacket promptly went in the back of my closet as soon as I got home. Over the years, I toyed with getting rid of it, but never could since I liked it. I kept telling myself: "One day..."

As I got ready for work this morning -- for the job I had interviewed for -- I saw the jacket in the back of the closet. "One day" had finely come.

Nine years later, the jacket is too big. It's baggy all over, but it finally got to go to work!

Happy Anniversary, New Me!

Happy New Me Anniversary!!

Today is my one year anniversary of "New Me"!! One year since I decided to really commit to a healthy lifestyle. I'm down 134lbs and SOOOOO much more active. I'm doing things I never imagined I'd do! It's awesome!

Tonight was also my first real trainer session (first time was mostly a consultation.) I'm excited to see how he can help me make good progress! It's ironic that it fell on my New Me anniversary!

I'm so excited to see what the next year brings!
